About Me

Hello all, I enjoy arts and crafts and trying new things. Currently, I am into weightlifting and bead arts.

I've lived in California my whole life and I hope to one day see all 58 counties. I love to travel, especially by train. It's on my bucket list to see all the US states and territories and every continent, including Antarctica.

I love all things electronic, mechanical, and natural. My command prompt is neon red and I especially love marine life and insects.

Swap Logistics

Don't hesitate to contact me if there are any postal mishaps on either end, things do happen. If something doesn't reach you, if there's postage due, anything that stops the swap from meeting requirements - let me know so we can work it out. Because of how my mail is routed, anything larger than a standard folded letter/A-4 size envelope will take an extra day or two from the time it is delivered until I can actually recieve it, so please keep that in mind if you have any package tracking.

Favorite Crafts

Like I said above, I have way too many hobbies.

Friendship bracelets/macrame was one of the first crafts I learned how to do and I love to collect different colors of embroidery floss. I am starting to learn how to do real embroidery.

I like to collect different kinds of scrapbooking paper, ephemera, washi tapes, etc. I'm always looking for new ways to use these items! I tend to have a lot of solid colors in different textures and a few patterns. I have a travel journal that I am slowly filling up as I travel around California and the US.

I absolutely love fountain pens! I tried them out after a wrist injury that never quite healed and fell in love! I'm currently building up a collection of inks and pens. My favorites as of late are the Sailor Manyo series and warm brown inks in general.

I also dabble in kandi and perler bead art.

I recently stumbled onto a set of very small crochet hooks. My grandmother used to crochet but forgot how to after a series of what the doctors called mini-strokes so I'm hoping I'll be able to pick up this beautiful skill and continue it on.

Favorite Music

When I was little, my mother had one rule when it came to the music I listened to - I had to know and understand what the words were saying, so my music taste ended up being pretty varied. I'll listen to anything once.

Likes:

  • Smooth jazz, bossa nova, and jazz in general
  • Vaporwave and mallsoft
  • 2000s pop punk (think Paramore, Sum 41, etc.)
  • Pop rock
  • Vocaloid songs
  • R&B
  • French rap, especially Damso
  • Math rock & midwest emo

Comment: I can't wait to share this with my granddaughter! This is exactly the sort of recipe that she can assemble herself and that her parents and siblings would enjoy. She'll be so proud to bring it to a Sunday dinner or potluck.

Comment: Thanks for your note. We saw the eclipse in totality in TX, but had some issues with clouds... I did not know that about the birds, but we sure do see many of them.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely art work! It's fun to see different versions of the neurographic designs. I also enjoyed the stamp and learning about Ernest J. Gaines. I looked him up and maybe you've introduced me to a new author. Thanks!
